Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms when

hiv

936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar m tn Mine is a story of a 28yer old out to have a bit of fun and using a condom only to start showing ARS symptoms in Jan close to 2 months from the said "safe-event". All antibody tests came out negative till around 110 days post exposure and that's when it hit me that the condom had failed!!!! Just did my WB today and it showed 2 env bands(120 and 160).Am in shock and I can't bring myself to believe these results. Where does a man go from here?

Avatar m tn Does anyone know when loss of appetite and sudden weight loss happens when it is associated with an HIV infection? Is this during the window period or after?
Avatar m tn Protected sex is safe sex when it comes to HIV. you dont have a HIV concern. be safe.
Avatar m tn also have hip pain and lower back pain. Are these symptoms mentioned any symptoms for hiv. I know I know- symptoms tell you nothing. Just trying to eliminate this because if it's not hiv, and I pray to God that its not, then it's definitely something else; hernia? tumor?

Avatar m tn I had vaginal and oral sex with a woman I wasn't all that familiar with on Saturday Aug. 17. I used a condom when having vaginal sex but did not use one when she performed oral sex on me. The following Tuesday I started to feel nauseas. The next morning It worsened. It is now Friday Aug. 23 and I still feel nauseas along with a slightly irritated throat, and achy pain in lower back. Does this at all sound like HIV? All responses are a appreciated. .
1436894 tn?1283747124 Before I begin, if you are sexual active, and/or having unprotected sex with multiple partners, you probably should have an HIV and STD screen twice a year. However, this doesn't sound like HIV one bit. I went through a phase like this when I was 19. I stayed home all the time, and stayed up all night playing games on the internet, and didn't wake up until about 1 or 2 in the afternoon, sometimes 3.
Avatar m tn so im not sure when and where i was exposed but on the month of may i was infected with gonorrhea which i had taken antibiotics to treat it. my symptoms started two or three weeks after..I have tested for hiv on the month of july which tested negative and again i have tested exactly after 22 days on august which tested negative too. my doc told me that i might not be infected but asked me to test again after 3 months. the test they use is combaids rs advantage st.
Avatar n tn 3 months post exposure is you when you can obtain a conclusive test result.
Avatar n tn i had unprotected oral and vaginal sex from a female about 4 months ago, and just recently started having the symptoms of hiv. first it was a chesty cough, then strain like headaches all the time. about a week later i noticed my tongue was white and i had some white sludge on the very back of my tongue that would scrape off. all of these symptoms point toward hiv. i got a test done and it came back negative, i know i sound paranoid but would just like an explanation.
Avatar f tn I moved into school the 25th on my first night 2 nights at school i had a horrible headache, by the third day i began to have cold like symptoms, I also began to have a pain in my lower abdominals when I went to the doctors she told me i had bv and prescribed an antibiotic, on the last day of having the antibiotic i began to feel really itchy and was diagnosed with a yeast infection she said it may have been because of the antibiotics.
Avatar m tn It was protected but I was entoxicated so not sure if it failed or not but looked ok when I pulled out. My symptoms are swollen glands in neck, stiff neck and back, underarm pain, sore in back of mouth and a rash on leg. The rash is little tiny red spots in an area the size of a quarter on my shin.
Avatar f tn have sex wit a friend so am scared of any infecton please l want to know the symptoms of hiv though l have an hiv test today which they told me to come in 2 weeks time for the result, l want to know more of hiv symptoms before the result is out. does swollen nodes on groin, armpit and neck pain?
Avatar n tn Most people are saying it is due to HIV. Some people are saying Thrush only occurs after you have had HIV for a number of years or when you have AIDS. My understanding is you get symptoms 3-4 weeks after contracting HIV but then nothing occurs for 7-10 years. It has only been 3 years since the condom broke and I have always used a condom since then. Please can somone set the record straight as much as possible. I am extremely worried and am planning to get tested.
Avatar m tn Hello I'll just straight to the point my post and ask some questions regarding HIV symptoms. 1) When a person starts to exhibit symptoms of a possible HIV infection do the symptoms ever go away? 2) Has there ever been a link between HIV and esinophilic colitis? 3) If hot flashes during sleep used to happen sparingly and now they happen almost daily can that be a sign of infection? 4) How accurate is the oral rapid HIV test given it has been years since last possible exposure?
Avatar m tn Does anyone know if this sounds like ARS? Also, when is the earliest that I can have a pretty reliable HIV test? Thanks for any help.
Avatar m tn I tested negative for all std's 3 months after sexual contact. During those 3 months I had no further sexual contact AT ALL. Do you think my symptoms are from that initial contact well over 6 months ago?
Avatar f tn You cannot diagnose HIV by symptoms. Only people who have had real and legitimate risks (unprotected vaginal sex, anal sex, sharing needles) need to test for HIV. You had absolutely no risk. Why would you even fathomly think someone poked your penis with a needle? It is outside the world of rational. You don't have HIV and any tests you take are a waste of money, time and resources.
Avatar m tn And if so, does anyone know approx when it would occur and for how long? B) can symptoms of cystic acne or weird skin stuff happen this far along during seroconversion ( would it have stopped at some point and gone away)? C) Lastly, has anyone ever heard of someone becoming positive after they've been tested at 7weeks and had a negative result?' Thank you for your replies and Support! I understand that I must test at 3mo to be sure, 6mo to be dead on sure, but just for peace of mind.....
Avatar n tn Some people like myself had no symptoms at all. So symptoms means nothing when it comes to HIV and HIV has no specific symptoms.
